20 THE LETHbOIBG: HERALD Montlav, May 11, 1970- T> 15rclV6 By DAVE MclNTOSII OTTAWA (CP) It's not too .lifficult to find an MP willing to say publicly he is against a pay increase for MPs. It's another thing to find one who says publicly he's for a raise, and a big one at that, as well as more office space and travel expenses. Such a brave soul is Ralph Stewart, '11-year-old Liberal MP for the Northern Ontario riding of Cochrane. He is also bilin- gual, a musician aid father of eight children between the ages of six and 16. "An MP is a businessman and a public servant, so why pay Wants Rcdse Despite Protests him like a he said in an interview. He suggests that an MP's pay be increased to or is, tile salary range of an assistant deputy minister in the civil service. MPs now get a year of which is salary and tax-free, non-accountable expenses. Mr. Stewart says the tax-free feature should be eliminated. But there should be travel ex- penses for an MP with a big riding like his own to visit al" parts of his constituency. The government has plans for or Parliament Hill so that each Drug-Bug Disease O nni liot bcarey 1 OTTAWA (CP) Drugs weaken germs, enabling the bcdy to kill them, but they can also change the germs so that new forms of disease appear in patients, or their old disease comes back later. This "drug-bug" relationship is a kind of man-made diseas> that is only beginning to be un- derstood. But it should be looked for by doctors in cases iif persistent infections, Dr. Paul A. Bunn, professor of medicine at State University of New York, told tlie Ontario Medical Association. The doctor said this adaptive capacity of the. unthinking mi- explain some uri- irfe'.ions, bacterial infection, cystic fibrosis the heart valves, in the young, pancreatic troubles, chronic bronchitis, recurrent abscesses and some forms of meningitis. "We now believe that very real diseases result from these kooky organisms and the list is Hearing Aid Licensing In Qffing CALGARY (CP) Manda- tory licensing of hearing aid dealers is being considered by the provincial government, Ray Atkinson, president of the southern chapter of the Alberta Hearing Aid Dealers Associa- tion, said here. The association'was working with Minister Ray Katzlaff on legislation which govern ethical prac- tices, coiapulsorr ad- vertising g; .arant.vs and ser- vica policies. Mr. Atkinson said in an hi terview that the association which represents 80 per cent of the hearing aid dealers in the province, supports moves to protect the public from a smal minority of unethical dealers. "All of our members are li- censed and bonded, and in fu- ture all dealers will be. This will eliminate what we cal fly-by-night operators and peo- ple who operate without an office." He said the public should bo wary of mail order firms which sell hearing aids. increasing Dr. Bunn told a news conference. But, he added, it shouldn't be regarded as a "scarey tiling." They are rarely fatal. He estimates that perhaps one per cent of germs may survive a drug prescribed to fight dis- ease. In some way, either through the drug's chemical ac- tion, chemical actions of the body or both, the germ's cell wall is destroyed but the inner core of the cell survives. Dr. Bunn said the "cell wall defective forms" may cause bi- zarre diseases in that form or, after the drug therapy has stopped, revert to their old form by growing a new cell wall and renewing the original infection. He reminded the OMA mem- bers that when treating disease doctors "must be certain that the good derived from such treatment far exceeds the unto- ward effects thnt such therapy maj also exert in other bodily systems and functions. At the news conference, Dr. Bunn said tobacco and alcohol are two commonly-useu chemi- cals which also affect tiie body's ability to fight disease because they depress the circulation and interfere with the action of dis- ease-fighting white cells. He estimates that most doc- tors could properly treat most diseases "in the best possible way with 30 drugs and there now are more than listed in our physicians' manuals." MP can have a private office MPs now have to share an off ice with a secretary, who has ti stand in the corridor when hei boss wants to have a private conversation with a visitor or on tlie telephone. Mr. Stewart says the Libera MPs are unanimous in feelinj that a salary increase is needec now. He says that if MPs don't gel one soon, at least 40 or 50 wil not run in the next election. Most Conservatives and Cred- itistes also appear to favor an increase, while some of the NDP members are opposed. Mr. Stewart says most NDP MPs against an increase are hypocrites who will immedi- ately accept a boost once it is approved by the Commons. He suggested that he woulc move an amendment to any pay-increase measure to make the boost optional for all MPs and to provide .for a yearly rec- ord in the public accounts of the salary received by each MP. PRESS CRITICIZED Mr. Stewart has written a let- ter to about 15 major Canadian newspapers saying the press too often derides and discredits MPs without ever telling about long hours of work they put in on Parliament Hill during the week and in their ridings during weekends. He says he works a 14-hour day and that he has to pay his own expenses when he travels in his constituency. Many MPs gave up good jobs to serve in Parliament. But they could be flung out at any time. Mr. Stewart says not enough MPs are willing to give their side of it publicly. Most avoided any public discussion of sala- ries. "Our own public relations is >artly to blame for the attitude >f contempt by some of the pub- lic and press towards he said. Men's Hostel Report Draws Criticism EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Human Rights Associ ation said here it is disappoint- ed in the report of an inquiry into conditions at the provin- cially operated hostel for transient men in Edmonton. In a prepared statement, the A1IRA said the report of Mr Justice O'Byrne, who conduct- ed the inquiry, is "superficial" and fails to make specific rec- ommendations as to how hoste staff should treat the institu- tion's residents. The inquiry was ordered by t h e provincial government after a number of complaints were made by men at the hos- tel that they were roughly treated by the institution's staff. Tlie AHRA was among those who urged an inquiry. The human rights group said it is "incredible" that the gov- ernment "is not taking any di- rect and immediate action to remove or retrain the em- ployees responsible" for the in- cidents of rough treatment. The group said some staff changes have been made at :he hostel recently, but resi- dents still complain of rough reatment. First Liberal Enters Field ST.

The sources denied Italian press speculation that the can- onization, which has sparked a religious controversy in pre- dominantly Protestant Britain, might be called off. Under an ancient church tra- dition, bishops and archbishops living within 100 miles of Rome have been summoned by Pope Paul to a at the Vati- can May 18 to give their views on the proposed canonization. Such consistories have always been regarded as a formality, but observers have been specu- lating that this may not be the ease this time. The martyrs were all exe- cuted during Protestant perse- cutions of English Reman Cath- olics between 1535 and 1681. British Anglicans have criti- cized the proposed canonizo- tions and the archbishop of terbury, Dr. .Michael Kamwy, has said it would harm the ecu- menical (Muse in Britain.
